The Beyerdynamic DT250 Appreciation Thread - Page 38

post #556 of 747
Im not sure how much difference there is between the 80 ohm and 250 ohm, having only heard the 80, but to say the 250 is a closed HD600 seems like hype. I say this cos Ive heard the HD650 and its far more refined than the 80 ohm DT250. Me thinks this is a case of headfi hyperitis.

They say it is a listing error and orders will be canceled.

Having hd580 and dt250-250 side by side, I would say the latter is more natural and speaker-like to me. More fun to listen to. I assume hd580 and hd600 are similar. Although Hd580 has more detail emphasis and sound stage, I think I will keep searching for the open back version of dt250-250.

Well, if they cancelled previous orders, they still have the offer available, so I had to place my order. We'll see. Worth a try. $27.80 with free Super Saver shipping.

 

At around $160 these are one of the best purchases I've ever made.

post #561 of 747

well I for one am glad it at least has brought some interest to these.

Hard to get them out of my mind, especially after reading this thread though end to end then again skimming it.

 

Appreciate everyone's impressions and input.

Ordered them a few hours ago, hope the order goes through...

You're telling me! I had to stop after reading the 1st and last 5 pages because I started lusting after them too much. C'mon amazon, be nice!

Oh  then you missed much more Wayne. Worth the entire read.

Will reading the entire thread make me feel better once amazon denies me? I didn't think so lol!

After reading the thread you will feel that even at 160 to $200, they are still a great value. Lets cut to the chase... these sound better than the Hifiman HE6, Sennheiser HD650, lots of open cans, and all the other closed cans I've tried:D

The only things about these cans where they can't compete with the top cans is in dynamics and low level detail. Soundstage although not all that big on these cans is quite nice and round especially for a closed headphone. Tonality is their strong suit.

That definitely sounds like hype. Hype helps no one.

I just bought Sennheiser HD600s. I will compare them with my DT250 250ohm.

 

I'll hear whether or not the DT250s deserve to be called closed HD600s.

They do hold their own and probably sound closest to the hd600 compared to any other closed headphone out there but of course sennheiser has their signature buttery mids that the beyers lack plus the senns soundstage is wider. Still, the beyers soundstage is more speakerlike to me. When listening to speakers, the sound doesn't spread so wide :D
